Ocotber car sales Western Europe AID Newsletter

Octoberís new car sales in Western Europe fell by just 1 per cent, according to AIDís provisional sales numbers. However, Octoberís slight dip in sales is mainly the result of a temporary market distortion, essentially caused by one fewer working day in many of the regionís markets. Apart from Germany, where October sales fell 5.6 per cent, chiefly because of two fewer working days, October sales were up in three of Europeís five major markets. This includes a 1.4 per cent October car sales gain in the UK.

Despite the statistical distortion, Octoberís car sales in Western Europe were still equal or higher than a year ago in half of the regionís markets. 

With just two months to the end of this year, West Europeís car market already topped last yearís comparative ten months sales levels by some 6.3 per cent, with lower cumulative sales registered only in the Netherlands and Switzerland
